"talking liberally" can be seen each weekend morning at 9:00 eastern, pacific. and here inside our "war room" is strategist donnie fowler. let me start with donnie. donnie, the big bird thing, with all of its problems why would the obama campaign make an ad about big bird. >> i don't know. it is the hottest thing on facebook right now. >> jennifer: it is funny. >> it is hilarious, but other people are funnier than politicians usually. >> jennifer: like stephanie miller for example. stephanie, what -- you guys -- on your show this morning, maybe a little bit early, because what do you read is the mood among progressives from the ground? >> a lot of times, feel like a hostage negotiator, just stay calm. >> jennifer: it's a therapy session. >> we knew this was going to be a tight race, and that being said, but a lot of them are sort of all over the place, and, you know, the battlegrounds are still obviously going
. this is "viewpoint" coming to you tonight from our current tv studio in los angeles. it was billed as a major address on economic policy. mitt romney would tell a crowd of iowa supporters and the world how he would lead the country forward into a new era of prosperity and growth. romney spoke today and yes romney did dust off the same five-point economic plan he has been touting for months. the only thing remotely fresh that romney offered was more cries for change wrapped in a series of unrelenting attacks on president obama who apparently bears sole responsibility for everything that has gone wrong in washington the fast four years. >> this is a year of a choice. americans want to see changes. four years ago people voted for a partisan president and washington is in gridlock because of it president obama reminds us that he inherited a terrible economy. it's not what he inherited but with the misguided policies that slowed the recovery and caused millions of americans to endure lengthy poverty. >> eliot: with change in the latest theme for the drive to the white house smith fired back saying, the on
from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. john mccain is unendorsing richard mourdock. the indiana senate candidate is underfire this week for calling rape pregnancies an intentional gift from god. coincidentally, mourdock is the only senate candidate mitt romney has endorse and cut an ad for this season. he just released the ad in support of mourdock monday and the rape comments came tuesday night. mccain said he will no longer support mourdock unless he apologizes for those remarks but most republicans are staying in mourdock's corner. santorum is saying it is gotcha politics and romney says while he does not agree with his statements, he supports him for senate. >>> president obama discussed the issue yesterday in an interview with jay leno. the interview was not all serious. the two took a lighter tone when discussing donald trump. >> what's this thing with trump and you? it's like me and letterman. what's he got against you? >> obama: you know
of the day. now we take time out to get the latest today's current tv from lisa ferguson in los angeles. >> good morning, everyone. less than two weeks left to go and president obama and mitt romney are prepping for their final debate tonight. tonight will be the final side by side comparison of the two candidates before the november vote, but if that doesn't settle the score for you, "politico" has six questions that will decide this year's election. number 1 has to do with romney's performance during the first presidential debate. he came out stronger than expected and the question is that enough to take votes away from the government. they also say what the heck is going on with all of these polls. what is more important is the electoral college vote and president obama does have the lead there. even though romney is closing in here in the states, president obama is still widely favored abroad. foreign views show the race as far from even. one survey showed 75% of europeans favor obama, 8% lean towards romney and many international leaders are unprepared for a

in the middling generalities about it instead of saying i want to build a super train that goes from los angeles to california. >> eliot: tim, who would have thought that barack obama, we could say he doesn't have the vision thing. we think he's so smart and he is. we think he does have vision and i think he does. but he has not presented it. he has never articulated his conception of what government is for, except, as you say, beyond the -- when it came to government -- he built it, infrastructure is the high-speed rail that no one thinks will get done in our lifetime. doug this is what bothers me. he did not lay the foundation for this anywhere along the past three and a half years. it is easy for mitt rom -- romney to mock it. >> the thing about the $90 billion, the president should have pushed back on that. many of the green energy funds that were made -- that were allocated through the recovery act were very successful and that's been a very successful program. there is a great book out there called the new new deal tha

ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. president obama and mitt romney are both capitalizing on the debate spin this week. particularly in going after women voters. and can you guess what the number one search term on google was yesterday? binders full of women. not only is that one not playing well for romney, it is not even true. those binders came from a group called the massachusetts government appointments project which put the list together before romney was even elected. so for him to say he requested groups of qualified women is a flat-out lie. romney did hire several new women but by the end of his term, the number of women in top positions was actually lower than it was when he took office. >>> romney's going after the president nonetheless saying there are more women in poverty now than when obama took office but the president is hammering home on romney's views on fair pay. here he was yesterday in eye what. >> when young women graduate, they should get eq
in los angeles. hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. if you are asking yourself who won last night's presidential debate you probably weren't watching. president obama came out with a strong and aggressive performance against mitt romney on foreign policy. the first instant poll from cbs shows 53% of undecided voters say president obama came out on top, just 23% say toward romney. but there are some differing opinions out there. according to cnn poll, only 40% of viewers say romney won but 60% say he is ready to handle the responsibilities of president. and 32% of independents say they are now more likely to vote for romney after last night's performance. that is surprising since by most accounts president obama effectively painted romney as untested reckless and inconsistent when it comes to foreign policy. he also mocked romney's knowledge of the military with the most popular zinger of the night. when romney complained that the navy has its smallest fleet in nearly 100 years, here is t
